Most people would choose to do a Grandmother’s Flower Garden throw in the beautiful colors that flowers typically come in. I love those colorful throws and blankets, but I also wanted to coordinate with my neutral living room décor. So I had to go a different way.
I got new furniture this year, and with it a new color scheme. Fun to redecorate and long overdue! That means I need new throws (need them I tell you!). I have always wanted to make a Grandmothers Flower Garden blanket and so I think one of the new throws will have to be in hexagons. I haven’t decided what I am going to do, exactly, if it will be in the traditional flower garden arrangement or some other pattern, other than it will be hexagons.
I don’t plan on starting to make it until the fall, or when I find yarn on sale in colors I want for it, so I have plenty of time to get ideas and try things out. I couldn’t help but tinker with ideas for a small hexagon, and I wanted it to be smaller than my previous hexagons, just 2 rounds and came up with this one. It is so simple that I am certain it is not original to me in any way, someone else must have done it this way before, probably many someone’s. I like how it is textured, which was created by crocheting the second round in between the stitches.
These are pretty small, only two rounds. These are only 2 3/4 inches across.
